Call for a more broad initial (IPO) distribution of Ether
What aethereum does is proposes to distribute coins to Bitcoin holders.
Does it makes sense for Ethereum ?
In my opinion, yes.
The success of failure of new alt-coins, beyond pure technology, is set around the fact, that many users can get it for free, even if in small quantity, just to try it out.
What I think makes sense to do, is to distribute a small portion, say 5% (0.05x) of IPO raise to Bitcoin holders, where Bitcoin guys will have to cryptographically prove, that they are the owners of said Bitcoins.
1. assuming 26 million Ethereum will get sold on IPO.
2. at 5% = 1.3 million ETH extra for Bitcoiners
3. You can take a snapshot of the Bitcoin block-chain at a certain date (around 13 million BTC),
so it means that each one Bitcoin holder will get you 0.1 Ether for free !
This will dramatically improve distribution of Ether to the wide-community of decentralized money believers,
improve decentralization, and increase chance of faster Ethereum adoption.
(Look at NXT: too centralized distribution to only 70 people is the biggest problem of NXT coin, in my opinion, and 100% pre-mining).
Ethereum will gain even at current distribution scheme, which I believe is fair, but it could gain adoption even faster with my proposal.
As an investor, I fully understand, that I dilute my coins by 5% initially, but it will be fully compensated by faster growth trajectory.
Disclosure: I'm long Ethereum. (invested precious Bitcoins in IPO)
